Family Portrait PHOTOGRAPHY

Family Photography Sessions highlight & reveal timeless moments together!

 You laugh out loud with your kids and pets and love spending time together.  You crack up when they do or say the funniest things.  And you know that they are growing up way too fast. So why not get family photos so that you can celebrate your family bond. Oh and if you have a dog, definitely bring him or her!  After all, they are family too and deserve to be in the family photos!

I know choosing a family photographer can be over-whelming, there’s a lot of planning to do, picking and finding the write outfits, making sure everyone can attend, prying it wont rain, and you are just so busy lately.  Well I help take a lot of the stress and overwhelm away from you by creating an enjoyable and fun process that is streamlined and fun.  This way, you feel confident you have chosen the right photographer for you.  I help make it Fun, effortless and enjoyable for the whole family.   At Candra Schank Photography, I guide you through the whole process so you and your family can look and feel your best. 

Let me help you capture heart-felt portraits of you and your family that you will be proud to showoff.  Depending on the look and feel you are going for, I photograph both natural candid AND stylized posed photos . If you’re feeling awkward or don’t feel comfortable in front of the camera,  don’t worry as I gently pose you into flattering poses.

Below are some examples of family, maternity, newborn, and dance portraits

When We Have Each Other, We Have EVERYTHING

Motherhood Milestones: Maternity & Newborn Sessions

Here we preserve those moments between child and mother and milestones that happen in a blink of an eye. My goal is to create fine art high end printed portraits of you and your family.

– Are you a pregnant mom?

– Or are you a mom with toddlers?

– Or are you an expecting mom with toddlers? 

Hehe well if you answered yes to any one of these questions, you know way to well how fast time flies by. 

They grow up way too fast.  And you DESERVE beautiful photos. Thus, let me help you hold onto this precious time in your life by creating heart-felt portraits of your growing family. 

Motherhood Milestones Sessions are held in Candra’s Owen Sound Natural Light Studio. These sessions are created especially for busy moms looking for some digital files and prints for around the house.  

Maternity sessions are usually done between weeks 28 & 34 (7 and 8 months).  Newborn sessions are usually held when baby is 5-28 days old. Sitter sessions occur once baby can sit by themselves, around 6 months.

Candra also has a small selection of maternity dresses for moms wanting something different than what’s in her closet 

I offer 3 different digital file packages and each come with a selected amount of digital files.

Packages start at $800. Please contact me for a full price list.

Heirloom Photo Albums

pet photo albumWhen you’re interested in a Photo album, I photograph your pet playing, cuddling, scratching ears, that adorable head tilt, and much more. Thus, all the images from your photo session are lovingly crafted into a beautiful high quality photo album that truly tells the story of your pet.

Album pages are beautifully thick (oh la la) and images are professionally printed
on fine art, lustre archival paper, rated to 75 years. These albums are a show-stopper piece of art – that is all about your pet and/or family


Bamboo Folio Heirloom Boxes

Family Favourite!  This is a beautiful heirloom wooden bamboo box. It contains 10-20 matted 5×7 prints.  You can choose to frame these yourself, keep some in the keepsake box, and/or display them in the matching wooden photos stand.  You can also upgrade the box from Bamboo to Timber Wood and add hand-torm edges to your photos.

Framed Canvas Wall Art

Yes, you read it right. They are framed! I love the polished and finished look of a
framed canvas. And I want you to have them too. Framed canvases are versatile
and look great in every home. All canvases are laminated to reduce fading.

Framed Print Wall Art

dog portraitOkay, this is my favourite…and my clients’ favourite. Whether you’re looking for a modern or traditional feel, framed wall art easily achieves that. Simply by changing the colour or style of frame will complete the look you are going for. Personally, I think a simple white frame looks good anywhere, but I also offer black,grey, brown, and many more looks and styles.

Portraits are printed on fine art paper, mounted, laminated and presented behind
acrylic with a dust backing to seal the wall art. Instead of glass, I use acrylic as it’s light and won’t shatter. This is important in homes with active dogs, cats or even children as wall art can sometimes be knocked off the wall 😉

High Resolution Digital Images

I love nothing more than to see my client’s images printed and hung on walls. But I also understand the importance of owning the digital files. This is why I offer high resolution files to all my clients either in the All Inclusive Session Package or apart of my collections.

Images are provided as high-resolution 300dpi digital image files in jpg format. Every image is professionally retouched and formatted so that you can print them yourself. I also provide a print release.

Fine Art MOUNTED OR Matted Prints

If you’re looking for individual prints, I offer luxury professional print packages. All prints are mounted on styrene (or matted) for a professional look and laminated so they don’t fade.

Fine Art prints are sold individually or in packages.
